IOC members, including Britain’s Princess Anne, right, listen to Obama’s pitch in Copenhagen. The elimination of Chicago as a potential host of the 2016 Games marks the second loss in a row for the U.S. in Olympic selections.
Oh wait….you mean he’s not apologizing for America’s sins? Hope and Change has arrived, finally!
One good thing about Barack Obama going to Copenhagen arguing for the United States and Chicago is he is gonna have to say some really, very positive things about the United States while abroad which is not something he has been doing.

Chicago is competing with Madrid, Tokyo and Rio de Janeiro to host the Summer Games, and Obama is the first U.S. president to address the International Olympic Committee (IOC) in person to support a city’s bid.

A former fetus, the “wordsmith from nantucket” was born in Phoenix, Arizona in 1968. Adopted at birth, wordsmith grew up a military brat. He achieved his B.A. in English from the University of California, Los Angeles (graduating in the top 97% of his class), where he also competed rings for the UCLA mens gymnastics team. The events of 9/11 woke him from his political slumber and malaise. Currently a personal trainer and gymnastics coach.
The wordsmith has never been to Nantucket.
